SPLATS - A funny kids monster book for adults also! A collection of crazy creatures with truly bizarre features! The Splat creatures were each created totally randomly! Colored inks were organically dripped on paper and then illustrated into weird and wonderful creatures when the ink dried. A funny story has been added to each character in the book!
Did you know? There are 126 Splat characters in total from Splatopia. In this book we explore 17 of them. They each have their own weird and wonderful story. Like Fuzz, the smallest creature alive, it just looks bigger due to all it's fluff!
You can even create your own Splat characters at the end of the book.
★★★★★ This is a very special collection of art work done by dripping paint to create these fun creatures. I loved them all and would really enjoy more books like this with crazy works of art with fun backstories. I highly recommend this book to kids of all ages. Becky P - NetGally

★★★★★ In the year 2001, Simon Crack submitted a collection of paintings of weird creatures as a project for his college Art and Design Foundation course. Inspired by that project, Splats contains illustrations of uniquely inventive creatures born out of randomly dripped colored ink on paper and gradually drawn into some truly mesmerizing shapes. Each creature is assigned fun-filled traits and characteristics that will appeal to children and light a spark to their unlimited imagination. The bright and vibrant choice of colors makes the illustrations pop out of the pages, making it easier to catch the young reader's eye. The excerpts accompanying them give an idea of how living beings in the real world are attuned to nature, and their physical makeup is dictated by the needs of their surrounding environment.
Splats is a delightful collection of illustrations and excerpts that are bound to inspire children into picking up a paintbrush. Author Simon Crack provides a creative way for children to express their limitless potential through art, which is not only a fun way to pass their time but it also invigorates their vast imagination. Apart from the excerpts that come with each illustration, Crack also leaves room for kids to use their own imagination and fill in the blanks in some of the paintings that are left without any writing beside them. My favorite aspect of the book is that every illustration seemed to be initially created by a random splash of colors and later given shape and meaning through a personal touch. Splats is a children's picture book I highly recommend.
